Leave Herman Cain a-looooooooone.
Byron York picks up the story that started on Fox News Channel.
Appearing on Fox News Monday morning, Rove produced a whiteboard on which he had written a list of recent and not-so-recent Cain gaffes: statements on abortion, taxes, terrorism, neoconservatism, the Mideast, and others. “The whole effect of this is to not create an image, I think, of him being a flip-flopper,” Rove said. “I think it’s to create an image of being not up to the task.”
“It’s a good thing the voters are not looking at Karl Rove’s little whiteboard,” Cain said in a phone conversation from a stop in Chicago Monday afternoon. “I believe it is a deliberate attempt to damage me because I am not, quote unquote, the establishment choice. But why not go with the choice that the people seem to like?”
Cain accused Rove of bias in favor of candidates with big organizations, lots of money, and prior experience in political office — all things Cain doesn’t have. “What has Karl Rove done?” Cain continued. “If I become the nominee, he has given Democrats talking points for a commercial to attack me. It makes no sense unless it’s a deliberate attempt on his part to try to push me down so that the candidate he wants rises to the top.”
When asked which candidate he believes Rove supports, Cain said, “I believe he wants Romney to get it.”
Herman Cain’s afraid of Karl Rove’s whiteboard?
What a wimp.
He’s simply no match for Obama.
